"Yellow Umbrella" 8"x6" oil on canvas panel

Today my goal was to just paint brush strokes of color and keep it a color composition.   To paint the spokes of the umbrella I painted the structure post and supports then laid in spots of color around  them.  I find this more interesting than trying to be too realistic.   Brought in some of the blue sky color in on the yellow for some darker color shifts.
